Word of Wizards - Excerpts: Eberron Player's Guide Alchemy
Eberron Player's Guide Excerpts: Alchemy
In this excerpt, it gives a short list of the new alchemical formulas in the book. However, only 2 of these alchemical items are fully stated.
The first is the Clockwork Bomb which is generally a time bomb that the PCs can set the time it will detonate up to 6 rounds. But it is also very unstable and could shake away from its original spot and/or detonate prematurely. The area of the blast (burst 1 centered on the bomb) remains the same but it's damage, attack bonus and DC for disarming it (Thievery) increase as the level goes higher.
The Clear-Path Mist is used to remove any difficult terrain caused by foliage or undergrowths but is also a deadly poison against plant creatures. As the level increases, it deals a greater amount of poison and ongoing damage to a larger area of difficult terrain or plant creatures.
